I'm assuming we're talking about a system scale set, but I'm not sure whether it'd be Eta-2 or Delta-7, with/without hyperdrive ring... Interesting.

Better not be an Eta-2, I already spent like $50 to build one. I wonder if there'll be more new LSW sets...

Ace, you better be doing coverage on this! XD

I'm inclined to expect that it will just be Obi-Wan's version of 7669. However, I can't help. but think that it has to include some kind of exclusive figure or feature to attract people to buy it. As it stands now, I don't understand the purpose of this set. We already have Plo Koon's fighter coming out this summer.

I doubt it.
We've already had plenty of JSF's.
My money's on a UCS scale set.

Greg, is your work being sold or just being done there?

Still no details on cost and production numbers of the exclusives yet?!

A UCS Obi-Wan's Starfighter would be pretty cool (not that I'd buy it, I don't collect UCS). Whether it's UCS or normal scale, I won't be getting it since I've made my own MOCs of Delta-7s and Delta-7Bs.

I would rather have a Kit Fisto JSF.

I'm betting my money on a UCS Delta-7 from AOTC because I don't recall ever seeing Obi-Wan's fighter in the Clone Wars.
And I'm a bit peeved that Hero Factory is getting it's own TV show, especially because the sets are just hitting the shelves. And I'm a former Bionicle fanboy. ;)

Eh, hopefully it'll be good. Too bad Bionicle didn't get one though, that was such an excellent series (up until the Glatorians, which is why I expect they decided it was done. Then again, can you imagine if it just ended with Makuta winning? I for one would love it, but some kids would be devastated.).

I will be at Comic Con. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There might be... something I'm giving away. But I will be doing (what I assume will be FREE) sketches (on special "official" LEGO cards). And I may have a handful of other things that I might not be able to officially sell/give away (BrickWorld prints?)... but I'll have them.

$75... too much or just right? I can't decide, and I'm a HUGE CubeDude fan. :S
